[Mailman-Users] Sending emails via Mailman Issue

I tired to telnet to port 25 on localhost and got a connection refused
I verified that sendmail was running and it was. I then proceeded to
/etc/hosts file and found that the loopback address for the machine was
incorrect. Instead of the address being 127.0.0.1 it was ::1. Once I
change it back it was all sweet.
I did apply some patches to my system recently so one of them must have
changed this address.
Again thanks for your assistance.

Can you double-check that your MTA is listening on port 25? Either
using: netstat -lnp (and looking for port 25) or: telnet localhost 25
and see if the MTA responds (after a few seconds, probably.)
